BE­FORE ex­am­i­nees troop to the 44 test­ing cen­ters in the coun­try for the up­com­ing Philip­pine Mil­i­tary Academy En­trance Ex­am­i­na­tion, health pro­to­cols should also be fol­lowed.

The one-day ex­am­i­na­tion sched­uled Au­gust 30 will be resched­uled Au­gust 26 to Oc­to­ber 3 in the dif­fer­ent test­ing cen­ters na­tion­wide in­clud­ing Baguio City.

With the Covid-19 pan­demic, Ma­jor Ch­eryl Tin­dog, PMA Spokesper­son said the mil­i­tary academy had to make ad­just­ments to en­sure that all ap­pli­cants and per­son­nel will be safe.

Tin­dog added the academy will fol­low the guide­lines set forth by the na­tional and lo­cal In­ter

Task Force on Emerg­ing In­fec­tious Diseases.

The mil­i­tary academy on Mon­day added each test­ing cen­ter will be al­lo­cated with four days to ad­min­is­ter the ex­am­i­na­tion to qual­i­fied ap­pli­cants while the num­ber of ex­am­i­nees shall not ex­ceed 50% of the sit­ting ca­pac­ity of the venue to be able to ob­serve phys­i­cal dis­tanc­ing.

PMA added proc­tor teams of each test­ing cen­ter will reach out to their re­spec­tive ex­am­i­nees and in­form them on their sched­uled date of ex­am­i­na­tions dur­ing the four day pe­riod.

“Ex­am­i­na­tion per­mits may now be down­loaded from the on­line sys­tem. Per­mits for mail ap­pli­cants will be emailed. Honor stu­dent-ap­pli­cants will present their spe­cial per­mits to the proc­tors in any test­ing cen­ter near­est them,” Tin­dog said.

When en­ter­ing the test­ing cen­ters, ex­am­i­nees must se­cure with them a health dec­la­ra­tion form from their lo­cal­ity and a med­i­cal cer­tifi­cate or clear­ance for their mu­nic­i­pal or city health of­fice.

The ex­am­i­nees are asked to co­or­di­nate with their re­spec­tive lo­cal govern­ment units on the pos­si­ble re­stric­tions on your move­ment to the ex­am­i­na­tion venue, and on other im­por­tant mea­sures to be com­plied.

For walk-in ap­pli­cants they may only be en­ter­tained on the last day of ex­am­i­na­tion pe­riod in a test­ing cen­ter.
